Great golf plus views of Malahide Estuary, Irish Sea & Lambay Island:

Golfers in Dublin are spoiled for choice, especially those looking for a links golf experience. And, of the East Coast courses I have played so far, the Island in Donabate is one of my favourites (having also played Portmarnock Links, Corballis, Royal Dublin, St. Anne’s, Rush plus a little further away courses at Laytown-Bettystown, Seapoint and Arklow).

Known as the Island because back in the day, when access roads weren’t too good, it was reachable by ferry boat from Malahide.

In fact, the par 4 14th is called “Old Clubhouse” because the tee-box stands on the site of the old club house. Also still in view are the remains of the old jetty, where golfers landed from the boat from Malahide. This is a tough hole whose narrow fairway is bounded by the Irish Sea on the right and low dunes on the left. In a way, this hole defines the course, as you need to hit fairway to have any reasonable chance of a par.

The most memorable hole for me was the par 3 13th – I went with 3 wood – my 2 companions hit driver. This is a tough hole to score on, particularly with the head-on gale we played in – unfortunately, the best any of us could do was to make bogey.

As usual, the course was in pristine condition and greens were terrific – if only the weather in early April could match!!

That said, whatever the weather, I always enjoy playing the Island and jump at any opportunity I get to play it.
